Glad to see that the role of a Public Diplomacy Official in Muthanna, Iraq includes supporting Iraqis in their efforts to preserve Iraqi culture.
Muslim Peacemaker Teams, IARP's partner in Iraq, also recently hosted an art show for Iraqi artist Shaima'a Saad at the Youth & Sport Najaf Center. Below are some images from the show, which over 500 people attended. This is a good example, I think, of an Iraqi artist empowered by a peace-building non-profit organization and then helping to change others' perceptions and ideas through art.
